*IMAGES REMOVED*

Suggested by Blueblaster, here it is.

Ode to the Burby: a retired Forest Service rig, a 1992 Chevy Suburban, a family member that has been there AND done that.

It's been a rock-solid vehicle and after 10 years of use after it's retirement, has only just now started to need a little work. About 4 years ago, it had a tune-up and a few things done before the trip to Idaho. It got a new muffler, synthetic oil and tune-up for the tranny, brake job, new shocks, a o-ring for the driveline, just little stuff. A few months back, it needed a new power steering pump, water pump, oil cooler lines, and a new intake manifold gasket. The other day the alternator needed new bearings and the tensioner replaced. But, all that repair spans 10 years of ownership and some was voluntary. With the original cost of the vehicle and repairs, it's been a little under a grand a year to run.

Winter storage:

Fire watch:

Winter slip:

Colder than a witches titty:

Water pump giving up:

Oil cooler lines giving up:

Even with the repairs, no joke, couldn't ask for a better vehicle. It's done everything asked and more.

Sounds like a very reliable car and doesn't look bad either. I'll use this space for putting up my car probably tomorrow or the day after. Whenever I get some pictures.

I wish I had pic's of the cars we have had over the years. But I'll get a pic tomorrow of the one we drive now and I'll put a list of the ones we have owned. Latest one to first.

2004 Honda Odyssey-Silver- (Late 2009-Present)
1997 Ford Explorer-Blue-(Early 2009-late 2009) Great car we just couldn't afford the fuel this thing sucked down.
2001 Toyota 4Runner-Red- (Mid 2008-Early 09) Awesome car but sold it to get some cash and bought ^ off a friend for cheap.
1998 Ford 150 Longbed-Green-(Mid 08-Early 09) traded to contractor for a bathroom lol.
1996 Honda Civic-Black- (Early 07-mid 07) Got repo'd cause their records where wrong and they thought we had not paid on it in 3 months when we had.
1991 Toyota 4Runner-Silver- (Early 05-Early 07) Exploded in Arizona while doing a cross country move. Sold to a 4x4 shop in flagstaff. God I miss that car I learned to drive in it.
1997 Mercury Grand Marquis-White-(Mid 04-Early 05)Traded it in on the 4Runner after moving into the mountains.
1997 Oldsmobile Cutless Ceira-Red-(Mid 01-Mid 04) Water pump failed blew up. Head gasket blew up.
1994 Ford Taurus-Red- (98-Mid 01) I don't really recall what happened to this one lol. I know mom ran it into the house at one point but that wasn't why we got rid of it.

So yeah there is my list of cars since 1998 lol.

You ain't shittin. It's done everything without complaint. All these years, all the use, abuse and hours of running and no major work has been done to the engine and it runs so smooth.

Very eye catching, good way to advertise. Stupid question; did you design it and have it printed somewhere?

that right there cost about $500 so i didn't want to do anything more than that.There's really no way to transition because it printed on material then the material is put on the car. You can't match the cars paint.

When I figure out a way to transition it without painting the car, headshot will become a graphics production company.
